Other methods we've been using:
- Swimming pool acrobatics
- Playing music to my pelvis
- Applying frozen veggies to the top of my uterus
- Hanging on an inversion table
At first I was hesitant about the idea. I wasn't sure what an inversion table was, and I read that it can be dangerous for pregnant women, especially those with high blood pressure. Also, it's not like we have a ton of extra space in our apartment. (Our front room looks like a wannabe fitness center with the inversion table and birth ball and exercise mat.) Tim and I have both enjoyed hanging out upside down on this thing. Also it seems like it should be really effective for the remedying of Breech Baby because I can flip back upright quickly without abdominal effort.
- ECV (external cephalic version)
If you want to watch a weird (mostly in the sense of the musical accompaniment) video showing what this is, please enjoy the following:
The silver lining to this is that I might otherwise be getting pretty anxious at this point to go into labor because pregnancy sucks, but since laboring with Breech Baby could very likely lead to a C-section, I'd like to get him turned first.
Also, I hear the ECV procedure can be pretty painful so that could prepare me well for the pain of contractions? Give me a good opportunity to practice hypnobirthing?
Yeah, we so excited!
